Antonio Moura is considered to be among the most resilient of Brazilian poets writing today, and is one of the youngest poets appearing in Nothing the Sun Could Not Explain: 20 Contemporary Brazilian Poets (2nd edition; 2003). Moura has published two previous books of original poetry in Brazil as well as a translation into Portuguese of the Madagascan poet Jean-Joseph Rabearivelo.
The conveying of a poet into another language can be talked through in various ways. Stefan Tobler's preface caught hold of me by its enthusiasm, pleasure in the work, and that he cares. The translator's practical invitation and his conveying the pleasure of the task is, so far as I can tell, brought to fruition in his translations. David Hart Stride Magazine 2012
